There is a chestnut tree in downtown Durand, cold edge of zone 4, (except
that it is in town not too far from the river) that we have gotten a few
nuts to plant from in past years. Most years we aren't lucky enough to get
there when the nuts are still on the ground.
Did I read something about blight or other problems in the grove near
LaCrosse in the last couple of years, or was that another grove in Wis?

there is a native stand of chestnuts unaffected by the blight, in the
experimental forest outside of LaCrosse, WI.... without a doubt we are
core zone 4. I still havent wandered over there to see them, shame on
